It probably goes without saying that Martin Garrix’s “Animals” is the song of the year for 2013 (unofficially). Love it or hate it “Animals” gets crowds amped up and it has one of the most unique drops of any Big Room House tune to come out in a while. What often happens with widely popular songs like these is they are remixed, edited, and bootlegged by producers across the world. Enter the Canadian duo Botnek, who I last posted about with their awesome track “I Know”. Botnek have really started to make a name for themselves with highly unique Electro-House and rapid-fire DJ sets (check out their Tomorrowland set in the same post above). Since I started paying more attention to Botnek, I was very interested to see they had created an edit of “Animals”, premiering exclusively through ThisSongIsSick.com on Friday. The edit keeps much of the original track intact but changes the two drops. The first drop is wacky and goofy but I like it a lot and I’m almost certain I’ve heard a couple DJs play it live. The second drop is more of a Big Room/main stage type of drop but I think it fits perfectly.
As I always say with artists like Botnek, make sure to follow them on SoundCloud and pay attention to what they’re doing – they are special!
